What causes sharp pain from the groin down to the leg?

Hi I have a sharp pain that starts in my left leg in the groin which becomes more severe and radiates down my leg . Is this some sort of hip injury? Is it a nerve irritation or muscle. How is this diagnosed clearly and what is the normal treatment and recovery time. Thank you so much Cathy Brown

hip injury show pain anterior and to the side of hip joint
